COM100 – Lesson 4 Short Answer 1. List the people you surveyed and the groups they discussed in the lesson. What similarities and differences between the groups did know notice from the surveys? Use concepts from the lesson, and specifically discuss the type of group(s), norms, and phases of group/team development. Give specific examples from the surveys. The two people that I interviewed are owners of the bar I work at. Shawn mainly runs the kitchen. He does inventory and does the shopping when we’re getting low on supplies. Now Sofia on the other hand is Shawn’s fiancé and she handles more of the business end of the company. She also bartends or waitresses when she’s needed. Even though they have different responsibilities and tasks there is one common goal that remains the same, keep the business running smoothly. The two groups that they interact in is the social group and the problem-solving group. The social group is “a group that exists to provide opportunities for group members to enjoy the company of others.” (Beebe, Beebe, & Ivy, 2008, p. 238) The problem-solving group is defined as a “group that meets to seek a solution to a problem.” (Beebe, Beebe, & Ivy, 2008, p. 238) The norms are pretty basic all around. Simple ones like don’t be disrespectful and not interrupting each other. 2. Describe when and how a group should institute norms in your own words. Share an example of when a norm was followed successfully and an example of when a norm was violated or broken.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
